After a long period without an audience, the ehrenfeldstudios will host the intergenerational dance festival

TANZ FEST SPIELE

from August 27 – 29 2021 under the hashtag #we need to dance together!

Under the artistic direction of Barbara Fuchs and Silke Z., the festival pursues the goals and visions of initiating and strengthening intergenerational solidarity, encouraging generational dialogue, creating equality between generations and a dance culture for all and with all. Especially now, in and hopefully soon after these unreal Corona times, it is especially important that we maintain the connection to each other. And dance connects – non-verbally and across borders!

More info about the festival programme can be found here!

For exchange and impulses, we have invited people from different institutions to the round table and devote ourselves to the question together:

How intergenerative is contemporary dance?

After an opener, the intergenerative production “Blicke” by Tanzkomplizen from Berlin by and with Janne Gregor and Coco Ramatou Gregor, we will start the round table at 2:30 pm with a physical start.

In working groups we want to talk about intergenerative artistic practice in contemporary dance from an artistic, institutional and social point of view and dare to look into the future.

Two lectures will offer further inspiration and a look beyond the horizon:

Prof. Dr. Kristin Westphal from the University of Koblenz-Landau will explore the potential of intergenerational performance work.
Dr. Miriam Haller from kubia, the competence centre for cultural education in old age and inclusion, will bring thoughts on cultural age education in times of Corona and the representation and overcoming of age stereotypes to the discussion.
